European Poker Tour Prague Day 2 begins

European Poker Tour Prague Day 2 begins

Wednesday, 15 December 2010

After two opening flights the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague €5,000 Main Event has bought the field together for Day 2 as the 254 survivors gather to play down to a final table and the just-announced €640,000 first place prize.

Dirk Richter made the earth move with his gargantuan stack as he begins the day with the chip lead, holding 296,700 which is almost six figures ahead of his closest opponent Elias Brussianos who has 199,600. Tobias Reinkenmeier is the only pro to have snuck into the top ten chip counts.

However, both Melanie Weisner and Liv Boeree are keeping up both the pro and eye candy front; the former has over 100,000 while our English rose has a middling stack of 59,700. Also in contention for today are former November Niner Kevin MacPhee; Dutch player who isn’t Luske or Veldhuis, Rob Hollink; and – only just – Praz Bansi, who snuck into Day 2 with just 26,000 chips.
